The Others...Washougal.

This is getting interesting. After this weekends Lucas Oil Pro National in Washougal, Washington the 250 and 450 championships have really tightened up. Rain came and went through the day and made for a very rutted track with heavy mud winding through the pine trees of the most scenic track on tour.

The 450 winner may already be known with KTM's Ryan Dungey continuing his solid rides. This week he would again grab the overall victory by swapping scores with JGR Yamaha's Justin Barcia. Barcia is in a groove and would be a real contender had he found it a few rounds earlier. Christophe Pourcel put is two consistent motos for 3rd overall on his Rockstar Husqvarna. Barcia and Suzuki rider Ken Roczen are now tied for 2nd in the championship.

The 2nd 450 moto was a nail biter with Dungey, Barcia and Roczen all within a few bike lengths. I love this kind of racing. 

The 250 class is going to get dicey as we approach the final. Cooper Webb is fast and fired up. This kid wants his Yamalube Yamaha on the podium at all costs. After his "bullcrap" 2nd place finish in moto 1 he'd go out and claim moto 2 and the overall. Marvin Musquin put his RedBull KTM on the podium with 1-2 scores for 2nd overall and really closed up the championship points chase after Jeremy Martin's 9-3 finishes on the day. Third overall on the day went to Yamalube Yamaha's Aaron Plessinger.

I've got to give it up to Washington native Tommy Weeck. 37-18 scores for 21st overall. Showing up and earning some points is huge. 

You may have also noticed a Honda in the 250 class piloted by Toshiki Tomita. Toshiki came over from Japan and went 17-12 for 14th overall. 

And now, The Others.
